I never read any Harry Potter books. I know many adults who did, however. They saw no harm in the stories. My daughter was inundated at every turn by them. I was only her flesh father. Such flesh fathers aren't able to determine that to which their children will be exposed, not in this divided house called America. The money-makers loved Harry Potter. Money has been more important than souls to most Americans. Thankfully, that's changing, because we are speaking out. We are speaking truth.

Well, I saw the first Harry Potter movie at my child's insistence. I also thought it my duty to see that to which my child and all the other children were being exposed by the general society. I saw in it all the partial truths used to lure the children away from the message of whole truth. I did my best to explain the deceptiveness to my child. So, I was familiar with this name "Dumbledore." Now, this name has shown up twice in the mainstream news via the words "Dumbledore is gay."

The first time I saw it today, I ignored it. That the headline showed up again on another site meant that the dark forces were up to something with it. Well I read the following article after clicking the link to see were the dark powers were leading the children astray in mass.

Well, it's official. Albus Dumbledore, a hero of the phenomenally popular Harry Potter series and headmaster of the wizarding school Hogwarts, is gay.

That's right, Harry's mentor and father-figure would prefer a nice wizard to a hot witch any day.

In a surprising new Potter twist, author J.K. Rowling outed Dumbledore at New York's Carnegie Hall in front of 2,000 Potter fans during a question and answer session Friday night.

After reading an excerpt from the seventh installment of her series, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," one young fan asked if Dumbledore had ever loved anyone.

"Dumbledore is gay, actually," replied Rowling.

She was initially met with a surprised silence but ultimately the audience erupted in cheers for several minutes prompting Rowling to add, "I would have told you earlier if I knew it would make you so happy."

Rowling went on to explain that Dumbledore fell for Gellert Grindelwald, his childhood friend with similarly brilliant wizarding skills, who eventually went over to the dark side and became the predecessor to the infamous villain Voldemort. That love, explained Rowling, was Dumbledore's "great tragedy."

Rowling explained that the issue of Dumbledore's sexuality came up in the making of one of the Harry Potter films.

"In fact, recently I was in a script read-through for the sixth film, and they had Dumbledore saying a line to Harry early in the script, saying, 'I knew a girl once, whose hair—'"

The crowd laughed.

"I had to write a little note in the margin and slide it along to the scriptwriter — 'Dumbledore's gay!'" she said.

Die-hard Potter muggles quickly reacted to the news online. The Harry Potter fan site had no less than 1,048 comments posted on the story as of early Saturday.

Many fans were thrilled with the announcement.

"This is a victory for homosexuality the world over," one wrote. "Dumbledore is iconic, and I can't wait for all those little children to hear about this. I am so insanely proud of [Rowling] for doing this."

But, not surprisingly, others were appalled.

"Thank you for permanently staining my view of Dumbledore," read a post from someone identifying himself or herself only as "Concerned Reader."

One major anti-Potter crusader is Laura Mallory, a mother of four from Georgia, who made headlines earlier this month when she told the Gwinnett County Board of Education that the series was trying to indoctrinate children into the Wicca religion. In response to Dumbledore's outing, Mallory told ABC News that the Potter series has "an anti-Christian agenda," and, "this only further supports that."

"My prayer is that parents would wake up, that the subtle way this is presented as harmless fantasy would be exposed for what it really is — a subtle indoctrination into anti-Christian values," said Mallory. "The kids are being introduced to a cult and witchcraft practices.

"A homosexual lifestyle is a harmful one," she added. "That's proven, medically."

Not surprisingly, conservatives at Saturday's Values Voters' summit in Washington also had some thoughts on the now controversial wizard.

"I feel like children's books shouldn't be political — they shouldn't have political ties, they're entertainment," attendee Katie Beach said. "I think it's pretty ridiculous for her to say that or to do that."

But none of that has stopped Rowling, who said she considers her novels as a "prolonged argument for tolerance," and urged her fans to "question authority."

Rowling's last Potter book, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," made history when it was released in July. Eleven million copies flew off shelves in the first 24 hours alone. And though the story chronicled the last of Harry's adventures, the renewed controversy may suggest Rowling's characters, muggle or wizard, gay or straight, will live on far beyond the end of the series.

"Rowling Lets Dumbledore Out of the Closet: Some Angered as Rowling Reveals Potter Mentor Was Into Wizards, Not Witches."

So what is going to happen? Well, this is going to crush the Harry Potter phenomenon. Many people who had been duped are going to come to very quickly. Even now, many Harry Potter books and movies are disappearing from bedroom shelves in houses of parents who now can't help but see what is behind it all. They have every right to censor what is in their houses. In fact, they have a duty.

This is going to increase home schooling and private schools. It is going to increase segregation. The separation along the lines of sexual harmlessness versus sexual harm will increase. It has to. That separation will also increase along the lines of giving and sharing versus greed and pacifism versus violence. It is prophesied.

That is why the Real Liberal Christian Church is right and has been from its inception. These things that are coming out are only serving as signs of the correctness of the path we are offering.

J.K. Rowling just did what is termed shooting oneself in the foot. She has exposed herself for the evil influenced she is. It had to be though. The Holy Spirit is exposing all evil. Greed, violence, and sexual harm are all from the same source. It is all of the selfish spirit. It is all antichrist.

Laura Mallory is quoted above as having said, "A homosexual lifestyle is a harmful one," she added. "That's proven, medically." That's nearly verbatim of what our readers have been seeing on this website from the beginning. Words of truth spread quickly. That cannot be denied. The truth is coming out. This marks the turning point. Note it.

God bless everyone so the light of truth about the harm of homosexuality and the lie about souls being unable to change will come out. It is coming out. This marks the beginning of the reversal for the homosexual agenda. It is good.

Soon you will see that consistency (giving and sharing, pacifism, and sexual harmlessness) will become the agenda. These Three Pillars of real Christianity will bring conflation and the Christian Commons. You can be a part of it. Let us save souls from the darkness of this world. Let us bring the light.

Please help this minister to continue this message full-time. Help with whatever you are able, but help with some amount.

This story has garnered a huge and quick response from many bloggers:

  1. Piggy and Tazzy says:

    I've never read so much rubbish written by one person in my entire life.

    The Harry Potter books are FANTASY. Can't you stupid religious nutcases understand that?


    As for Laura Mallory saying, “A homosexual lifestyle is a harmful one,” and adding “That’s proven, medically", where is this proof?

    A homosexual lifestyle is equally as harmful as a heterosexual lifestyle.

    One of things of greatest harm to a homosexual lifestyle is the bigoted claptrap spouted by people such as her - Someone without a shred of understanding of another individuals lifestyle, nor even an attempt to understand.

    Religion, in some circumstances, is a wonderful thing. A focus for people, a community of shared interests, a bringing together of people with (in most cases) good hearts and intentions. But it's also an avenue of opportunity for the bigots of society to bash, demean and criticise everyone else they don't agree with.

    Whatever happened to religion bringing EVERYONE together, despite their differences and accepting EVERYONE for who they are as individuals?

    Whatever happened to the love, understanding, the outstretched arms in welcome?

    I'm a gay man. I'm in love with another man. Remember that word 'Love'?

    To suggest to anyone - especially the younger population - that being in love with someone, even if of the same sex, is wrong is truly disgraceful.

    You people really need to get a grip of yourselves and open your eyes a little.

    We're not monsters, nor are we disciples of some evil form. We're human - just like you. We just happen to live our lives a little differently.

    And for the record, I'm a christian myself. The fact I'm gay makes no difference. I know God loves me just as much as he loves you.

  2. MJ says:

    For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. — John 3:16

    God loves everyone.

    God loves gays.

  3. missprint says:

    If you had read my post, to which you linked, you might have noticed that Rowling also said that her series was a "prolonged argument for tolerance." An argument, apparently, that this blog has not yet heard.

  4. Piggy and Tazzy says:

    I'm pleased to see missprint dropped in to clarify things.

    As ever, the religious mafia conveniently miss out the parts that bring clarity.

    And thank you, MJ. I also think that God loves The Gays.

    I heard a rumour he also loves Canadians, but I'm awaiting some proof.

  5. Viking Steve says:

    Hell yeah, he's gay.

    I don't need JK to tell me that!

    As a man on the threshold of his closet I find Dumbledore a very attractive nman. The book character is far sexier than the film character.

    But, I'd still give the old boy a portion.

    Those flowing, silver bugger-grips are a delight to behold.


    Oh, and speaking of getting a grip..........think about getting one on reality you self righteous bigot!

  6. Psycheout says:

    Apparently the sinners are out in force today. You should all be ashamed of yourselves. Of course you have no shame.

    Turn away from homosexuality and turn towards Jesus.

  7. frobisher says:

    Harry Potter is a fictional character, Howarts is a fictional place. Dumbledore doesn't exist - Will you people get a grip. I was bought up to believe Jesus taught love, peace and understanding.

    not hate, fear and intolerance.

  8. Tom Usher says:

    To the various commentators so far, hello to you all and welcome to the Real Liberal Christian Church,

    Thank you, Psycheout, for the words of encouragement.

    To Tazzy and Piggy,

    Jesus said, But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. Matthew 5:28. The sin is real. Harry Potter encourages children to commit sins in their hearts. It is a method of conditioning the children to lower their inhibitions against harm to themselves and to others. If you don't see that, you don't understand his meaning. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. Matthew 15:14. If you do understand his words, his meaning, and reject him, so much more is the sin.

    As for proof that homosexuality is harmful, read our post on the subject, "Homosexuals: What they ignore," Then take care not to deny the truth. Once you see it, if you are given to see it, help us spread what is real.

    You call us "stupid religious nutcases." A nut case is someone who is crazy (insane). Insanity is not being able to differentiate between righteousness and evil. Righteousness heals. Evil causes harm (disease). Homosexuality causes and spreads disease. Those who know it and yet countenance homosexuality are in a worse position than insanity alone, are they not.

    You are under a misimpression concerning Christianity. Christ didn't come to bring everyone together. He came to divide the sheep and the goats. His flock doesn't include those who choose to remain servants of sin, which is harm, the very harm proven in the post on homosexuality cited above.

    Christianity is not about accepting (in the sense you're using the term "accepting") everyone as he or she is. It is about calling sinners to repent. Christian tolerance extends only to not using coercion. Christian tolerance does not mean condoning harmful behavior or tempting children to harm or confusing them about what constitutes deception and temptation to fall.

    You are a homosexual. Are you thinking about yourself or the welfare of the children?

    Millions of men love Jesus Christ (a man). Millions of those men are heterosexuals. Those men are not saying to any younger person that love of Christ or any brother in Christ is wrong, quite the contrary. Are you given by God to see that?

    You wrote the following:

    We're not monsters, nor are we disciples of some evil form. We're human - just like you. We just happen to live our lives a little differently.And for the record, I'm a christian myself. The fact I'm gay makes no difference. I know God loves me just as much as he loves you.

    Jesus called them serpents. They were humans. He called them that because they were exhibiting serpentine qualities of selfishness and indifference to their offspring. Snakes don't nurture.

    You don't live your life "a little differently." You are engaging in radically different behavior. Your root and mine are right now completely different. As for God loving you as he loves me, there is not one connotation of the term "love." Jesus loved them, but he let them fall into the ditch. Do you know how to reconcile that? If you don't reconcile it, you won't know Jesus. You won't love him. You'll remain of the other.

    Hello MJ,

    You quoted John 3:16 to justify homosexuality. The verse contains the operative word "believeth." What does it mean? He said to his believers, Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. Matthew 10:16. Harmless is operative. Those who knowingly do harm do not believe. Homosexuality is harmful. Doing it is harmful. Tempting the children with it is evil. It is attempting to harm them, to cause them to fall also.

    To misprint,

    We already refuted your point above.

    To Viking Steve,

    You call us a "self righteous bigot." Jesus was bigoted. There isn't anything inherently wrong with being bigoted. It simply depends upon the grounds for discrimination. He was definitely partial to his sheep. They heeded the call to promoting righteousness over sin. You don't think you are being self-righteous? You don't think you are being bigoted? We are reminding the people of the words of Jesus Christ. We are one with God and Jesus in spirit. That is the "self" you are blaspheming.

    Do you reflect? Do you search your soul? Are you a sexual predator? Do you think of the real well-being of the children, or do you want to devour them? What is your spirit? God bless you Steve with the truth.

    Hello frobisher,

    Is the satanic spirit real or a fantasy? Were Jesus's parables real? Did his analogies lead people to righteousness or evil? The story of Harry Potter according to the authoress is to promote. Fiction is a vehicle for proselytizing isn't it. Fiction can state the truth or falsehood. Who among us knows whether or not the Good Samaritan was a so-called fictional character? The truth in the story (parable) of the Good Samaritan still convinces people to change behavior from selfish (evil) to unselfish (good).

    As for Christianity being not about hate or fear, that is not true. Jesus hated and still hates iniquity and rightly so. He also taught and still teaches that we are to fear Satan who can kill our souls in hell. Jesus both loved and hated his family simultaneously.

    This real teaching is ignored by those who are unwilling to accept the full implications of Jesus's message and exemplary life. Whether it is money or weapons or harmful sexual lusts, they don't want to give it up for the sake of others, the wholeness (wholesomeness). They reject the healing. They choose to remain servants of sin. They are confused, lost, spiritually blind, dead, and truly unreal that is to say false-hearted.

    Think before you speak and write. Check your conscience. Get it in working order. This is the message of Jesus Christ given in the spirit of warning-love.

    Learn the meaning. It is coming: The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful. — Isaiah 32:5

    Real love, peace, and truth to all,


  9. Piggy and Tazzy says:


    Thank you for your reply. Much appreciated.

    I have indeed read your other post.

    Quoting diseases at us. Very good. Unfortunately, also misguided.

    I'll correct a few of your (incorrect) assumptions for you.

    HHV-8 (thats a form of herpes virus which is implicated in the development of Kaposis Sarcoma - a form of cancerous skin lesions).

    As you probably know as well as I do, HHV-8 has NEVER been a gay male disease. It is more commonly found among the elder Mediterranean and African community and is also vertically transmissable from mother to child in the womb. Hardly a gay male only disease.

    HIV - Again, as you know. HIV is FAR more prevalent in the straight population. I believe the latest figures indicate somewhere in the region of 50x greater.

    Condom use - Once more, I refute your claim relating to condom use. Thanks to the great work that (almost exlusively) lesbian and gay sexual health groups carry out promoting and educating safer sex practises.

    If only the same can be said for the straight community - other than their visits to STD clinics, most straight people receive no education on their use whatsoever.

    A lesson that could possibly help cut down on the great numbers of teenage pregancies, don't you think?

    Gay Bowel Syndrome. Pah! There's actually no such thing! GBS is merely a collective slang in the absence of any (as yet) defined and accepted common medical term for multiple anorectal and colon diseases.

    Using diseases as an argument supporting a religious view or outlook is just silly.

    Virii and bacteria do not discriminate depending on whether or not you are gay or straight.

    We all know that there a VERY few illnesses or diseases that affect only one gender, let alone one sexuality.

    As for citing the fact that gay relationships don't last... Erm, how does that differ from the straight population?

    We see daily reports on the levels of straight marraige breakups. Mostly as a result of te infidelity of one or both partners. The sanctity of hetersexual marraige seems no more guaranteed than in a gay one. To say otherwise is a complete and utter lie.

    Moving on...

    How on earth does Harry Potter encourage children to commit sin? He's a fictional character in the midst of a battle against evil. Surely the character is encouraging children to seek out the good side of live and enlightening them to the nastiness of the other?

    As for me, I don't lead a radically different lifestyle. My lifestyle, excepting my location and work choices in life, are probably quite similar to yours - I'm a nice, amiable, loving, caring and giving person.

    I get up in the mornings, go about my (non-evil) business, then return home to my partner who I love and have chosen to share my life with.

    What's so evil about that?

  10. Piggy and Tazzy says:

    Oh I almost forgot...

    Who exactly did Jesus call the serpents?

    I most certainly do NOT exhibit serpentine qualities of selfishness and indifference.

    Perhaps if you knew me a little better, as opposed to just making an assumption, you would come to know this.

  11. Tom Usher says:

    Tazzy and Piggy,

    You've rejected the light. Well, that's what many souls do.

    For the benefit of our other visitors and readers, we'll address the few things you said. Understand that we are not about quarreling. We just state the truth and let the souls sort themselves.

    As for HHV-8, something was lost in the translation. You either didn't understand or decided to take it wrong. We retained the language of the original source material of John R. Diggs, Jr., M.D. If new information comes to light, that will be that. However, the general conclusion of the documentation is overwhelmingly undeniable that homosexual behavior is detrimental in general.

    When we read Diggs' work, we took it that he was referring to sexual behavior and was not saying that all the manifestations of a named state were exclusive to homosexuals or would remain so.

    Even the Wikipedia, which is scoured by homosexuals, states the following concerning HHV-8:

    Gay and bi-sexual men are more susceptible to infection (through still unknown routes of sexual transmission) whereas the virus is transmitted through non-sexual routes in developing countries.

    That is how we took the point. The post leaves open more revelation. That's why it says, "so far." Surely, you aren't suggesting that the entire argument rises or falls on your initial impression concerning that one point out of all the numerous things stated.

    Nevertheless, it says homosexuals are more susceptible. That is a problem of homosexuality. Is everything going to remain exactly as is? We aren't saying that. We are saying that the pattern is that homosexuality leads to nothing good and only to that which is worse and inevitably the worst.

    As for HIV, promiscuity and other factors have led to HIV spreading in heterosexual populations. However, if there had never been an epidemic in the homosexual community that spread via bi-sexuality, where would HIV stand now? HIV spread like wildfire in the bathhouses of San Francisco and New York and other places were homosexuals engaged in huge orgiastic behavior. That is undeniable.

    Teenage pregnancies are due to socially lax attitudes about the harm of selfishness in general. Children are taught by society to seek to satisfy selfish lusts of all kinds. Those lusts are increased and even created by greedy marketers who want the money that hyper-consumptive children and their parents will bring them. Supplying condoms is just more of the same. It is saying, give in to your lusts. From there comes war and more greed. The whole spirit is one and is the source of all of humanity's problems. Homosexuality is part of that misleading spirit of temptation, caving in, and dragging others along if they don't refuse to go along.

    "Gay Bowel Syndrome. Pah! There’s actually no such thing!" Anyone who denies that homosexuals have major problems in that area way above the per capita incidences in the heterosexual community is just obfuscating. In addition, heterosexuals also make the mistake of engaging in anal intercourse. The proper comparison to make is with faithful, monogamous heterosexuals who don't engage in anal intercourse.

    The method used in attempting to deny the truth is typical of all deniers. The method is to pick out one or two things and to try to cast the tiniest doubt and then claim that the whole was resting upon just one leg.

    The question is, is homosexuality good for one or bad for one. Tazzy and Piggy, do you have any physical problems that you would not have if you were not engaged in homosexual behavior? Don't lie.

    As for fidelity, the doctor's research was about prevalence. We are not saying that heterosexual adultery doesn't exist. We are saying that the spirit of laxness inherent in acceptance of homosexuality is conducive to more of itself (laxness). Homosexuals are more promiscuous because that goes with that spirit. The laxness that is accepting of heterosexual adultery is the same reason homosexuality has been able to make such inroads into loosened society. It isn't the narrow way. It isn't through the strait gate.

    We are interested in having zero promiscuity. We are interested in zero ill-health. The spirit of Jesus Christ can cure all disease. It can make the being incorruptible. Accepting laxness being pawned off as tolerance is not conducive to that spirit. It is conducive to disease and finally death of the flesh and soul in hell. That's what Jesus teaches. You say you are Christians, but you don't agree with him.

    Jesus can rid the flesh of all harmful viruses and bacteria instantly and from afar. It just takes sufficient belief individually and societally. Where there was great doubt, the people could not be cured. Jesus can end all homosexuality. You and your partner don't need to continue your behavior. You can break your sexual addiction by believing in Jesus.

    Straight marriages are failing that would not otherwise have failed because of the hardness in people's hearts. That hardness is their selfishness. They will continue engaging in behavior that is shown not to be good, but they won't overcome their desires of the flesh. It is why there is greed. It is why there are wars. It is why there is sexual depravity (homosexual harm included, of course).

    Harry Potter is not consistent. Harry Potter is partial truth. It is the evil part to which we object. He is a fictional character ostensibly battling evil. Her teaching method is for not crediting God and for teaching the children that miraculous things are actually not real or if they are, they are magic apart from God. Harry Potter is the authoress' vehicle for imparting that to which she wants the children to partake, to feed on, ingest, and to make a part of them. The stories are diversions away from the message of Jesus Christ. The entire language that the children are being taught and the entire lifestyle concerning which they are being prepped and for which they're being set up includes acceptance of all sorts of things that are unacceptable in heaven. Their proper inhibitions are being systematically reduced.

    Watch what happens. The lines will form. The sheep will gravitate together. The goats will gravitate together. The goats will subscribe to your position regarding Harry Potter. The sheep will look to the Gospels and find the truth--the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

    You don't understand that J.K. Rowling hates Jesus and God. She hates what Jesus teaches. She loves the money she's made. She loves it that now she's front and center and people are heeding her word over righteousness. She wants his demise. She is of the dark side. You are duped. You are duping yourselves. You aren't being honest with yourselves. You are in denial about the satanic spirit.

    Is homosexuality completely benign? That's a yes or no. Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. Matthew 12:33.

    The fruit of homosexuality is not good, and you know that. Your disease in you is clinging. It has its claws dug into you. It hurts you when you try to get them out. You become afraid to turn to God.

    Well, that's all I can do for you. If you persist in your denial and continue to facilitate the denial of others and the rejection of the true, wholesome, healthy teachings and life example of Jesus, you won't be there.

    We don't judge or condemn you. We just speak the truth. Turn and repent.

    As for the issue of serpentine qualities, this is a matter of hypocrisy. The Pharisees and Publicans gave to their immediate flesh offspring who loved them in return, but they were still being serpentine. It was and is serpentine because they didn't take care of everyone. That's the message of Jesus. That's why we're telling you that your approach is harmful.

    If all the children listen to you and not Jesus, they will die in the sense Jesus used the word. You aren't leading them correctly. You are being selective so you may comfortably continue your behavior you imagine. We tell you, you'll be sorry. We say it as no threat but as only a warning to the wise. It is not we who will devour your soul in hell, but Satan and his fallen angels.

    Understand that Jesus made it perfectly clear that he is against the sins that went on in Sodom (from whenst comes the word Sodomy, meaning homosexual anal intercourse).

    And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. Matthew 11:23.

    He wouldn't have said that otherwise. Those of Sodom, he said, would have stopped their sexual behavior, turned, repented, and been spared. Where does that leave you? Do you need signs? Ask God and Jesus in earnest. You'll be given signs just for you. Reject them at your own peril.


  12. Piggy and Tazzy says:

    Thanks once again for the reply, Tom.

    I don't consider that I've rejected the light. I merely question the authority - no, that's not quite right - the 'interpretation' of your quotes.

    I'm also impressed that you take the time to extensively counter some of the points that I make, whilst not once acknowledging that there may be some merit in what I have to say.

    I'd be interested in your take on this: (it's a very short clip from the TV programme 'West Wing')

    I consider it an example of how one can very easily interpret passages from the Bible rather too literally. Much in the same way that preachers can use those very same passages in which to castigate others.

    Anyway, I really would be interested in your analysis of the clip.

    Once again, I thank you for your time debating these issues with me. I honestly do find it interesting, informative and thought provoking - even if we're at odd's over certain interpretations.

    But there again, thats what's good about healthy debate. Often, both sides (if willing to listen) can learn and grow.

  13. Piggy and Tazzy says:

    "Tazzy and Piggy, do you have any physical problems that you would not have if you were not engaged in homosexual behavior? Don’t lie."

    In a word, 'No'.

  14. Psycheout says:

    How about mental problems?

  15. Piggy and Tazzy says:

  16. Contrary says:

    My blog was one of the sites linked to in your little list.

    Just for the record, no Harry Potter books were removed from my home. I am planning to reread No.7 again soon. My 4 year is looking forward to the day when he's old enough to read the books and watch the movies.

    In short: We love God, Harry Potter, and The Gays in pretty much that order.

    Please do not link to me ever again, you short-sighted, judgemental Nazi.

  17. Eric says:

    My blog was also one of those you linked to. Clearly you did not read the post to which you linked nor did you read my blog.

    You remind me more than a little of the cult church that I grew up attending (Potters House Christian Fellowship) lots of "turn or burn" and professing to be the only one to have a handle on the depth of evil inherent in a work of fiction. Christians back in the 80's (when I was growing up)had the inherently evil heavy metal music to rail against and held parties to burn and bulldoze piles of evil heavy metal albums. In in their frothy, rabid, well meaning fervor they turned many people off from Christianity. They went to Christmas parades and staged skits where a man dressed as Santa Claus walked behind a man dressed like Jesus carrying a cross and whipped him. I'm sure that led many more souls to repentence than it made people think Christians are nuts.

    You remind me of that kind of Christian.

    Jesus spent time with the people who the religious establishment considered to be the dregs of society. Tax collectors, prostitutes etc. If he walked the world today he would still spend time with the people the religious (notice I said religious)consider the dregs and would still be making the religious establishment very very uncomfortable.

    Hate the sin but love the sinner. What you spew has the faintest aroma of hating the sinner and the sin.

    That said, thanks for the link. I always welcome traffic to my blog, even from legalists, cults and slightly scary Christians.

  18. I never knew that about Dumbledore, that is quite interesting. I had never expected that, he certainly did not come off as gay. Anyway, I love Harry Potter, and if the world renowned author chooses that this character should have had this certain sexual preference, let it be. There were not even any mentions of homosexuality at all in the novel. So stop whining, moreover, stop hating that which seems to go against the predetermined "norms" of some extremist beliefs. Sure have your opinion, but please do not talk about banning or burning of books. These books are engaing, and despite what you think, they teach us courage, perseverance, and above all tolerance. Its funny this causes me to remember what my teacher told me the other day, she went to a private school, which was taught and run by nuns. She was left handed, which is a not all too common recessive trait. You see the humerous thing is however, that all of the nuns would fervently try to force her into using the hand that was not dominant, her right. Why? Well, apparently being left handed was associated with the devil, moreover, it was "different"

  19. Tom Usher says:

    Hello Komodo Dragon,

    It would be helpful were you to read more of this site before commenting.

    Why didn't you "let it be" that I wrote what I wrote?

    No, we shouldn't "let it be" in silence that anyone is proselytizing to the youth for harmful homosexuality. Only a fool would think otherwise.

    Aren't you whining here and hating here? Of course you are. You are whining against what I wrote. You hate what I stand for. It doesn't match what you want to become the evil norm.

    You obviously hate the message of Jesus Christ. You call it an extremist belief as if being extremely right is being extremely evil. Wake up. You're hypnotized by those who are pulling you down into a cesspool.

    As for banning books or burning books, I don't hold with coercion, but people can clean their homes of whatever they want. Jesus cleansed the temple of the money-changers and animal sacrificers and such. Do you say he was wrong in doing so? Heaven forbid. Hold your tongue. You don't know what you're talking about.

    Harry Potter books are engaging, you say. Engaging in what? Pulling children into what? The sodomites of Sodom were engaging in what? What did people find engaging in Sodom? You think sodomy isn't harmful? Read, "Homosexuals: What they ignore." Then tell me about it.

    You wrote that Harry Potter books "teach us courage, perseverance, and above all tolerance." They didn't teach me those things. Now she's openly teaching homosexuality. Dangle the candy then pull the kid in and molest him or her. It has ever been so since the liar from the beginning.

    Consistency (the absence of hypocrisy) is true courage and perseverance. Harry Potter doesn't teach against hypocrisy. Harry Potter books don't teach what Jesus taught.

    You aren't so confused that you actually believe that Harry Potter books teach the whole message of Jesus are you?

    Evil cloaks itself. Don't you know that? Where is God in the series? Where is Jesus? Where is the message of Jesus to be as harmless as doves? Is homosexuality as harmless as a dove? Hardly. Also, homosexuality is always a choice. Anyone is given the freewill choice to reject it. I reject it, just like that.

    Tolerance in Christianity does not mean not speaking out against what is harmful and misleading. Tolerance in Christianity means not coercing others. You don't see me advocating for coercion. I advocate for the lesser of evils where people aren't being smart enough to overcome coercion, but I advocate for not using coercion but rather for people turning, repenting, and atoning. Read it.

    I've seen the "left handed" story a number of times before. There are those who show statistics that left handedness results in greater accidents and injuries. However, others turn around and explain that left-handers having to use right-handed equipment has a great deal to do with it.

    Now, tell us, since you have deemed to come here to justify yourself, how homosexuality and left-handedness and society at large and the nuns and are analogous. They aren't.

    The nuns were Roman Catholics were they not? What does that have to do with me?

    You need to do some soul searching. You're off course. Your position is misleading. See the light of the whole truth. Stop defending those who lead the children astray into harmful, selfish behavior that spoils them and ripples out ruining the rest. Be honest.

    May God bless you with the light if you will.

    You need to realize that you were sent here so homosexuality and the rest of evil would be further debunked.

    The isssue of homosexuality is not very easy for the church.

  21. Tom Usher says:

    Hello unnikuttan,

    The answer is clear and plain. Jesus's real disciples are not troubled by this issue. Thou shalt not engage in homosexual behavior. It's harmful all the way around. Nothing ultimately good comes from it. That's the way of it.

    God bless,


  22. kittrulez88 says:

    ummm... you know, Tom, it would help your case a lot more if you were a little more polite. if you are so righteous, why are you being so rude? we all have opinions, yes, but don't assume things that aren't true , in another post you wrote:

    "You obviously hate the message of Jesus Christ" was that really necessary? I think not? how do you know that he/she isn't a believer? just because he/she likes Harry Potter? Or just because he/she does not hate the gay community? excuse me, that one remark was completely out of line : dangle the candy and then pull them in and molest? what in the world? who do you think you are, saying things like that? that actually went against what you are defending because apparently you are unaware of the prevalently high cases of pastors and priests who have molested children. I mean, i guess its alright if they do it, after all, they are believers, and work for God himself. i happen to be very good friends with someone who is a devout Christian and loves Harry Potter, actually I have many who are. Before you say anything, they OBVIOUSLY are.. because they OBVIOUSLY are very moral, attend church every Sunday, often read from the bible, and are not afraid to say it! However, they are accepting of others. So, start being a little more accepting, and a little more polite if you wish to get more pleasing comments, i mean ... practically all of these comments are against what you right ... i wonder ... maybe ... just maybe there is a reason for that?

    Hello kittrulez88,

    I'm not in a popularity contest where I'll fall to your attempts at temptation. When has truth been popular?

    Who do I think I am? I'm the one telling the truth. Who do you think you are spreading error?

    Homosexuality is harmful. There are those who claim it isn't. They are misleading people into harm. What does politeness have to do with saving children and others from the lies of homosexuals? I don't care if they are offended. They need to stop promoting harm and passing it off as harmless. They need to develop a working conscience.

    What's the matter with you that you're defending evil? You need to examine yourself. What are you doing? You're aiding harm. "Homosexuals: What they ignore."

    Jesus was considered rude. He offended those who didn't agree with him. Read it for yourself. He threw over the tables of the moneychangers in the temple. Do you think they didn't think him rude? I'm not ashamed of him. Are you? Would you have said to Jesus, "You need to be more polite"? Please, wake up.

    I don't defend any pastors or priests who molest anyone. That's a ridiculous accusation. You need to read more of this site before you throw stones.

    You don't know the difference between saying you're a believer and being a Christian. Anyone who promotes homosexuality is not a Christian and does, in fact, hate the message of Jesus Christ. Jesus's message was clearly and plainly against such harmful behavior. A Christian by definition chooses not to engage in homosexuality, promote it, or tolerate it in his or her house. Homosexuals hate this.

    Jesus is the word. He spoke the truth. Homosexuals hate his word. They don't want to live up to all his words including all that is clearly implied. Look up the word "hate" in the New Testament. Read it in full context. You need to become informed.

    A Christian won't be coercive about it though. Jesus didn't go around being coercive. The only record we have concerns cleaning his own house (God's house, the temple). Of course, that's a foreshadowing of the cleaning of Jerusalem and Israel and one day the Earth and Heaven.

    Listen, Jesus said that Sodom would have repented. Do you think he's in favor of homosexuality, or do you think he thinks it's a sin?

    As for "dangle the candy," don't be so naive or play at it. They are claiming there's no harm and that people should just give in to the urge to experiment. They tell people they'll like it. Curiosity often results in great pain, suffering, death, and destruction. People on the make are often very generous. Who doesn't know that? Sure, not every homosexual will fall to using exactly the same techniques, but they all have them to some degree.

    The homosexuals have been proselytizing very hard. They are trying to get laws passed that would outlaw my speaking the truth about the harmfulness of homosexuality.

    Look, an HIV-positive person going around having unprotected sex with uninformed partners can be criminally prosecuted for that. Why is that? It's because it's harmful. Well, homosexuality is harmful, period. Absolutely nothing good comes from it.

    A person cannot be "very moral" and accept homosexuality as nothing harmful, not a sin. It's a sin. No Christian thinks otherwise. Anyone thinking otherwise is not a Christian and is not being completely moral (doesn't know right from wrong or doesn't care).

    Comments that please me are righteous comments. That's good. The reason there aren't more righteous comments is because there aren't very many Christians. There are people who claim Christianity but don't bother with what it really means.

    Few there be that find it. That's what Jesus said. If I were hugely popular with this wicked generation, I'd be doing the wrong thing for sure. When the people turn to God, I'll be popular and not before.

    You're living in world based upon a false dichotomy of conservative and liberal. Neither the mainstream conservative nor liberal has it right. Read, "About Our Name: Real Liberal Christian Church."
